u can also try buying a refundable ticket and then cancel the ticket
Will that definitely do the trick? I'm told that they might reissue the refundable ticket as a voucher with the same date. Anyone no for sure? The UA rep wasn't sure. Iv'e already done it once with a throw away ticket & that worked.

Good idea, however I'm nervous that if it doesn't work & I don't get the new paper voucher (with the current exp date) before it expires in a few weeks.

You don't always get a new voucher when you cancel a ticket, they may leave it in the PNR good only for the person you booked the ticket for.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

That's what I'm afraid of. I am therefore looking for a throw away, cheapest I found was lax-sfo for $70.

No free stop on CO/UA in the US48.
CO offers a stopover award for 35K.

Is there a airline which allows free stopovers (or minimal fee) on paid domestic tickets?

Is that the only airline which offers it? are there any normal airlines e.g. aa,delta etc;?
